Our alumni program puts together fabulous events. At the end of May, a group of us—yes, I am an alum!—were treated to a lecture and tour of the Cezanne and American Modernism exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
Associate Professor of Art Philip Jacks talked with us about Cezanne’s life and how his art bridged the generation of Impressionists and the modern art painters of the early 20th century by redefining the structure and principles of their art. Cezanne, apparently, was a bit of a recluse who didn’t leave a lot of materials behind, but he had an incredible influence on American artists.
It was great to gather with our alumni, including Steve Frankil, BA ’74, who recently received the GW Alumni Outstanding Service Award. If you’re in the area this summer, cool off with a tour of the Cezanne exhibit in the Baltimore Museum of Art.
